Featuring... John Lennon - One of the most influential singer-songwriters of the past hundred years, John Lennon was a peace icon. He didn’t just sing songs about love and unity, but was involved in various pro-peace political movements and paid for billboards with anti-war slogans on them in London and New York. Dr. Seuss - If you were born in America, there’s a twenty-five percent chance that the first book you ever read was written by Theodor Geisel, known more widely as Dr. Seuss. Michael Jordan - Widely regarded as the best basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan is a towering figure in the world of sports. The man has his own brand of shoes, and can be seen selling undershirts in commercials now that he’s retired from dominating a whole sport for years. Steve Jobs - This man is seen by many as one of the most important visionaries of the century. A business icon credited with revolutionizing the tech industry, he is a household name on par with the likes of legends such as Henry Ford. Mozart - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is perhaps the most famous musician of all time. His music has been listened to and performed for the past two hundred years. Mother Teresa - If you look at most lists of 'the best people who ever lived', chances are Mother Teresa will make an appearance. Most hail her as the pinnacle of human kindness as she even won the Nobel peace prize. Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll, is an instantly recognizable cultural icon. He had girls fainting in the audience before The Beatles, and became an international sex symbol thanks to his high energy erotic dancing and womanizing image. Mahatma Gandhi was the leader of the Indian independence movement, an independence movement, that, unlike a lot of others, didn’t involve trying to kill lots of people. Leonardo da Vinci is known for basically everything you can be known for. He was an inventor, painter, sculptor, architect, scientist, musician, mathematician, and virtually every other kind of ‘ician’ that existed at the time. Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of facebook, inspired the movie, The Social Network, and is quite a rich person, to say the least. In short, He is the penultimate entrepreneurial programmer.
His Holiness Pope Benedict XIV solemnly and infallibly taught the following: “If anyone dared to assert that the Pontiff had erred in this or that canonization, we shall say that he is, if not a heretic, at least temerarious, a giver of scandal to the whole Church, an insulter of the saints, a favourer of those heretics who deny the Church’s authority in canonizing saints, savouring of heresy by giving unbelievers an occasion to mock the faithful, the assertor of an erroneous opinion and liable to very grave penalties.”
If you ever do another, Winston Churchill should be top of the list!! Made out the hero of WW2.. Although, what hero invents a kind of soldier/policeman hybrid called the Black & Tans, to engineering a Famine in Bengal that takes 4 million lives?! The man was truly a monster who wanted to protect only Empire!! Lest we forget?!
You should offer an apology for the VERY SEXIST comment about Elvis - hinting at his homosexuality as if it was something to be ashamed of. It's way past time that we accepted everyone for their sexual preferences, without judgement! Shame on you!
Some people don't deserve to be on this list. So what if Zuckerberg is a bad coder? Mozart wasn't a bad person - just one with a weird fetish. As for Lennon, hitting people in anger is not the same as killing them in a war, so its not necessarily a contradiction.
The only one I didn’t know was that Elvis was bisexual. Not surprising, as he lived his life to excess. Or, maybe he just wanted to experience everything?
When I was 5, I got his autograph at the Lake Sanctuary on Sunset Blvd! Priscilla & Lisa Marie were there too!
I’m still angry at my parents for not keeping it safe, as it went missing at some point!! How awesome it would be to have that memorabilia today!!
Now I agree with ALL the ones he mentions except Leonardo De Vinci! Even if he was responsible for orchestrating the robbing of graves, he DID do it for the sake of advancing his experiments on knowledge of the human anatomy. Nothing more than a Forensic Scientist would do today. Remove him from your list and you've done well revealing the nature of the others!
No, none of this is surprising to me. I've learned a long time ago that people are rarely who they seem to be, which is why I've never joined the ranks of celebrity worshipers. As a former Catholic, I saw through the Vatican a long time ago. On the contrary, the bigger and more famous the reputation, the more atrocious the behavior tends to be.
Opposites sides of the scrimmage? Someone's not into "sportsball".
Anyway, as a guy who didn't like Jordan (bc he wasn't on my favorite team and would regularly beat them), I thought his HoF speech was fantastic. He went off on EVERYBODY for no other reason he finally could. So much pent up anger and it was just unleashed.
Yeah I thought this was interesting video about interesting people and the inside was surprising and seemed realistic and true... I guess Elvis being bisexual is a little bit of a shocker. Everyone knew Steve Jobs was a gigantic prick.
Hugo Boss was an active member of the Nazi party he remained loyal to the Nazi ideology right up to his death. He worked along side Hitler designing the SS uniform, Hitler youth black and brown shirts, and the Nazi war uniforms. He used salve labor from the camps mostly polish and French to work in his factories. Holocaust survivors started legal action against him, this led to an apology from the company. It is said today that part of the proceeds from his business go to far right wing parties in Germany. I don't and never will own any thing to do with Hugo Boss.
Not a good guy? John Lennon was a prick. You only skimmed the surface. I know you have limited time so I want to let people know that there's far far more to this àsshats.
He told his son, Julian that he was a drunken mistake and Paul was k own to be more of a father to Julian than John.
You better run form your life little girl.
And Yoko was just as bad or worse, This was a couple made in he'll. They both abandoned their families and when John died, Yoko wouldn't give Julian the letters he'd written to his father. She sold them at auction and Julian had to buy them.
MJ IS an asshole and that is pretty well known, but your embellishment was a bit obtuse.
First of all, the comments made toward other players during games is the norm. Fans arent privy to the conversations held on the court during the thousands of games that have been and are played. "Talking shit" is VERY common amongst pros and non pros alike.
Second, I was unaware of his HoF speech, so I went and watched it immediately after viewing this video.
The video was far from "bizarre". His speech was based on the idea of or premise of how and where he got his competitive nature and how he kept it going so that he could be the best player he could be.
Anyone who watches the video in its entirety, will understand why he made the statements and comments that he made about the people you mentioned in this video. He DID NOT put them on "Blast". He stated how they motivated him to strive to be the best through competitive challenges.
Michael Jordan's speech was nothing in the way you portray. He was speaking freely and "cutting up" as we say in the American South, not complaining. He's one of the greatest competitors speaking to a room full of his peers, their families, and friends...among others. These negative opinions come from the clueless, who have no guts, moxie, grit, or sack to compete as such. Pro athletes are literally warriors, as with all high-level competitors. Some...most just don't get it, which is what makes the greatest of greats so amazing.
Mozart was not a bad person. His type of humor is completely normal here in Germany. "Leck mich am Arsch" or antiquated "Leck mich im Arsche" is still a regularly used phrase in coloquial German and used to express hatred or amusement. You fucking English speakers also pull a bunch of swear words out of your asses all the time, don't you?
Ted Geisel was the ONLY public figure who warned about Hitler in the early 1930s. His pro-American cartoons were typical of the times. He was a truly great man, despite the fact that actually being around children made him uncomfortable.
When it comes to Mother Theresa...I understand why it’s in fashion to examine her time in India. She wasn’t as perfect as propaganda has led us to believe, duh, but she did help people when no one else was willing or able to do so. Surely, despite her mistakes, she should be lauded for trying to help individuals who were being ignored by their own government and people. Was she canonized a bit quickly? Yes. Was she really a saint? Probably not. She was, however, a humanitarian, despite what recent attempts to discredit that fact may have you believe.
Yep. Some of this stuff is true. But much of it is distorted, taken out of context or the result of hearsay evidence used for this fanciful distortion. It is another example of a ten list put out without proper research and fact checking. I am unimpressed.
When you get done watching number 10... Go check out jhene aiko video - bad peace. There are similarities with the number 10 picture of her in the bed by the window with flowers and messages on the window
Teresa is converter machine for church in India....
She converted lakhs of hindus in India...
And now there are charges on her NGO missionaries of charity of human trafficking...
Her NGO sells children to earn money to convert Hindus in India...
